Hot News: The Reticent’s Chris Hathcock Denounces North Carolina’s Same-Sex Marriage Ban

THE RETICENT‘s Chris Hathcock recently denounced the May 8th passage of Amendment One, North Carolina’s constitutional amendment prohibiting the legal recognition of domestic unions, including same-sex marriages. The amendment, which has made North Carolina a national focal point for the issue, defines marriage as solely a union between a man and a woman, and expands an existing North Carolina law banning gay marriage. Hathcock posted the following statement on THE RETICENT‘s Facebook page: www.facebook.com/thereticentmusic.

The Reticent is collectively disappointed in North Carolina’s passage of an exclusivist, misguided, and ill-informed piece of legislature today. The mind reels. It is all too clear what really fueled those voters that checked “For” which is terribly disheartening. Billy Graham took out an ad in 14 NC newspapers proclaiming his support and we quote him: “The Bible is clear…”. Alright, then we would like to posit the following as other examples of marriage found in that text:”

In response to reactions from Facebook posts about the statement, Hatchcock went on to write:“The anger and vitriol on all sides of the current debate in our home state and country is troubling to us. And further we do not want to entertain any further debate on our page because all we want to do is make music. The thing that is most staggering and regretful in all of this is that it seems we as a people cannot have an earnest discussion about this.”

On May 29th Heaven and Hell Records will release the much anticipated follow-up to THE RETICENT‘s 2008 album Amor Mortem Mei Erit. As multi-instrumentalist, composer, and sole member behind THE RETICENT, Chris “Mordrid” Hathcock has created yet another beautifully conceived opus in Le Temps Detruit Tout. It is one that delves further into the progressive mind and soul of THE RETICENT; an intelligently crafted album that will certainly challenge the listener both intellectually and emotionally. Hathcock has gone beyond the current boundaries of progressive metal and delivered what is sure to become a classic of the genre.

Le Temps Detruit Tout is unequivocally recommended for fans of Opeth, Tool, A Perfect Circle, Riverside, Porcupine Tree, Katatonia, Cynic, Neurosis and similar artists. The album can be pre-ordered at this location.
